Ads That Haven't Stood The Test Of Time

Share |


As I get older, I've noticed more and more that television ads make less and less sense. I often wonder if it's my ability of comprehension that's at fault, or whether advertising producers and printers are targeting an entirely different age groups from my own.

I want to think the latter is correct. After all, I'm a bright enough bunny, right? Here are some ads that prove my point. Advertisers have to cater for their audiences. These ads below would be either out-of-place, politically incorrect, or totally offensive if shown these days. So the next time you see an ad you don't understand, be comforted in the fact that you're mature enough for advertisers to feel they can no longer fool or entice you with their less-than 'perfect' products.

I have long had my feathers ruffled by sexist ads, management, media... It seems we just cannot grow up!

Classic stuff! Especially the smoke in the face. Love it.

I do get a kick out of ad number 4. Ad 3 a close second but really these are pretty bad. How times have hanged and for the better despite what we usually think.

How dreadful, thank goodness times have changed! Well in some countries, anyway.

Fast forward to the present - these ads scream 'terrible!'

Thanks, guys. I can't see these even passing the 'thinking' stages of ads in today's climate. I quite like the last one with the guys showering together. There is something sort of innocent about it, don't you think?
